Ever since I saw this picture on Booooooom, I can’t stop looking at it! I’m not sure if it’s the really textural stuff the people are standing in, or the total lack of stuff in the top part of the picture. (Other than the bits flying off the person’s hands.) I just really like it! It’s by Brendan Monroe, and if you are intrigued too, you should check out the post Booooooom did about him. You’ll find many more interesting works with lots of movement in them.
I came across this article about the modern American farmer, and saved it for the release of our Farmer’s Daughter catalog. The Morning News showcases the amazing photos from Paul Mobley’s book “American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country” and an interview with the photographer that spent four years exploring the people that are bringing food to our local farmer’s markets.

I love this dog hat. I love it! Trixie totally needs one. Trouble is, I can’t seem to find a pattern for it anywhere! I can’t even find out who made it! I found the picture on fffffound, and they claim that they found it on Apartment Therapy. However I searched all over Apartment Therapy and came up with nothing! Do any of you skilled knit and crocheters have any ideas of how one would make this hat?
Note: Thanks to reader ZombieFace, I now know where you can find the dog hat on the web! See it here, and it’s Apartment Therapy page here! Thank you ZombieFace!
Additionally – while I was looking for the dog hat on Apartment Therapy, look at what I did find!
A hamburger bed! I never would have thought I’d want to sleep with lettuce and cheese sheets and a bun comforter, but actually, the hamburger bed looks pretty comfy! It really amuses me, so I wanted to share it with you!
Above is the girl who created the bed, relaxing on her design. To top it off, you can be the hamburger bed’s Facebook friend, if you feel so inclined.
I had lots of fun flipping through this online gallery of book covers and designers! I love seeing the different versions of the same books and seeing covers I’ve never seen for books that I have read.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover? Did the book live up to the art? Leave us a comment with the link to your favorites!
I’m loving this cover I spotted today. Maybe I’ll give it a read…
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is starting to become more popular as a form of camping for people who wouldn’t ordinarily enjoy camping. There are a number of glamp-sites popping up everywhere! Pre-pitched and lavishly furnished tents, stocked ponds, and numerous other amenities are some of the features of these places. For the most part they do not have electricity or internet though – thank goodness! I think if they had internet or electricity their resemblance to camping would be pretty much gone. The New York Times has a little article about glamping here. What do you guys think? Do you want to go glamping?
Today we received something very exciting in the mail! It was a little pet-camera, which you can clip to your pet’s collar so that you can see their view of the world! It takes a picture once a minute, and we had a blast today trying it out with Trixie, my chihuahua. She wore the camera for about an hour total and showed us the extremely large and low to the ground world of the chihuahua. Check out some of the pictures below!
Hehe! Next we plan to try the camera out on a larger doggy, we’re not sure who yet though! I will post the results!
Believe it or not, these incredible scenes all are within aquariums! Takashi Amano, who many of you may already know of, (though I didn’t!) is the creator of the above aquascapes, as well as countless others. A very well respected photographer and aquarist, Takashi was one of the main people to introduce Japanese gardening styles to the aquarium hobby. His aquarium scenes are always very carefully arranged and yet very natural looking! See more photos of his stunning work (and it is a lot of hard work) here, here, and here.
I am loving these surreal and colorful designs by Richard Hogg. The centaurs totally rock my world, and the seals are so comical! There is a lot more cool art on his site, including, to my delight, a few desktop backgrounds and a (scandalous) screensaver! So right now I have an extra fun and very hirsute Richard Hogg desktop! :)
